spending cuts and we need to be talking about increasing revenues. it takes both to close the deficit. we both submitted our economic proposals to the boston globe. they were sent out four independent economic analysis. what the independent economists found is that i was 67% more effective at cutting the deficit then senator brown. why? because i am willing to make cuts. i am willing to make substantial cuts. i support substantial cuts. i also believe we have to raise revenues. that is what it will take to get serious about our deficit. i truly believe on this one, this is about our children and grandchildren. we cannot leave it to our grandchildren to pay off our debts. >> great question. we are in the $16 trillion national debt. we are in another trillion dollar deficit. you cannot keep borrowing to pay our bills. when we are talking about cutting military spending, we have party cut in half a trillion dollars. that affects many people in this room and people watching. i have been battling as a member of the arms services committee to try to find the resources to protect our men and wom

for drilling on public land and water. i got to ask him about the deficit spending. i asked him why he spent $90 billion sending money to bring energy companies, many owned by friends and contributors of his. we heard what he had to say or not say. i think we boiled it down to this. more recently, he said you cannot change washington from the inside. you have to change it from the outside. we will give him that chance on november 6. [applause] there were a couple of places where we agreed. we agreed we would take this country in very different directions. he points out, actually it was the vice president appointed out the truth, but they are planning on raising taxes to dollars trillion with the obamacare taxes. there is no question they are spending. the interest on the debt they have announced -- amassed will cause them to raise taxes on the middle class. i make this commitment to you. under no circumstances will i raise taxes on middle-class americans. [applause] under his path, we will have obamacare installed. let me tell you what that means. the bureaucrats will tell you what treatment
